"#MeToo rose to prominence as a social media campaign in the wake of high-profile accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. After actress Alyssa Milano popularized the hashtag, thousands of women began sharing their stories about the pervasive damage wrought by sexual harassment and by "open secrets" about abuse."

Except to refer back to the post of November 28th, to restate my admiration for the women who have found the courage to come forward publicly and to say I have enormous sympathy for the many good men whose past mistakes have caught up with them and who have been mowed down by the current avalanche of recriminations.
I will miss many of them.

George Winston! I saw him perform a few times back in the 80s, he performed in big concert halls alone on stage, barefoot. It was magical.
I feel a mix of compassion and disappointment, anger and a fierce joy at these events(its complex in here). For many of them as Uma said "I'm glad its slow you don't deserve a bullet"

(((Michelle))) feminist Australian writer Helen Garner wrote a very controversial book about these issues called "The First Stone" back in 1995, it's worth reading to gain a different perspective on a complex issue.

Thank you for this, Michelle. I had forgotten how much I love Winston's "Winter" an album I listened to each December while I was a Hawaiian living on her Hawaiian Island. Such complexity in displacement.
